Is the California Housing Market Bouncing Back? It looks like the housing market is back -- or at least well on its way. Standard and Poor's Case-Shiller Index this week revealed that March housing prices were nearly 11% higher than last year's. Several cities, including Los Angeles, had their highest gains in more than seven years. There are bidding wars and all-cash offers. Who are these buyers? What's driving this? Are we at risk for another bubble?
Janesville and the American Dream Janesville, Wisconsin is the hometown of Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan. But he couldn’t prevent the closing of the General Motors factory after 100 years. On this Memorial Day rebroadcast of To the Point, we hear what’s happened to what once was a model of American middle-class unity.
What happens when America retreats from the world?

León Krauze guest hosts.

Later on today’s show, now that he’s into his second term, comedian turned US Senator Al Franken is telling jokes again.
